Description: The stakes are high in Manchester!

Picture this: Dracula is on the hunt for a flatmate. He takes a gamble on some shady guy from Craigslist, name of Van Helsing . . . and next thing you know, poor ol’ Drac is staked while he sleeps. But wait! There’s a better way, and that’s where you come in.

Our client is looking for a Perl software developer who will embrace their Modern Perl codebase, appreciate that it’s split into RESTful APIs, and enjoy using tools like Gearman and Memcached to deal with load spikes and batch work. They want someone whose pulse pounds at the thought of developing new features and fixing those pesky bugs in a secure, well-tested, and performant way. After all, no one likes termites in the coffin!

Your fang-tastic new role is located in picturesque Transylvania—er, wait, scratch that. No need to buy a garlic necklace just yet, because your new role is in bustling Central Manchester. You’ll spend your daylight hours in modern, spacious offices where you’ll nosh on complimentary fruit and delish caffeinated beverages. They offer tons of extracurricular activities and fun benefits like a Cycle to Work scheme, season travel loans, and a diamond Rolex just for coming on board. Okay, we might be stretching the truth with the Rolex, but how about matched pension contributions and gym membership contributions? Bloody brilliant!

Neck-biting is a strict office no-no, but otherwise, the client embraces humble folks with positive energy. They’re a family business for the modern age, 100% owned by the founders and directors. Their mission is to help guys and ghouls find happier flatshares—you know, ones where they don’t wind up dusted by dawn.

This role is for a Perl developer who is interested in working with performance, security, the whole shebang. If your mind moves at the speed of a vampire bat in flight and you enjoy unearthing clever solutions to tricky domain problems and customer issues, then you might be perfect for this plum position. If you’re interested, don’t wait until darkness falls—email us now and let us know!
